Pythons and alligators are both among the deadliest creatures in the animal kingdom. It can be difficult to say, though, which one is more dangerous than the other.

One man, however, had a front row seat to see these two powerful animals fight to the death to prove which one was superior. It was a battle royale for the ages!

Joe Capozzi was riding his mountain bike in Ochopee, Florida when he stopped to see something spectacular.

That poor alligator never stood a chance. It’s enough to make you wonder, though, why these two reptiles were fighting in the first place!
